It’s no secret (though it is sad) that it’s way easier to find homes for cute, fluffy, healthy-looking pets than animals who look sick or old. So 26-year-old David Fernandez is doing his part to make sure that sick, mange-ridden pups he finds on the streets are put on the right track to health. Then, he highlights their transformations in jaw-dropping before-and-after photos to help find them homes.
David is from Chile, where there are many street dogs roaming about.
Many of these dogs have internal or external conditions that have made people hesitant to touch them.
But David takes them in and gets them the care they need to return to health.
He relies on donations to help fund the dogs’ recovery and vet bills, which can obviously become quite expensive.
Once the dogs are healthy, he posts their images on Instagram to help them find foster and permanent homes.
Some of the “before” photos are hard to look at, but the “after” results make it all worthwhile.
David is doing an amazing job with these pups, and it’s clear that they appreciate all the love and care he’s given them to transform their lives!
